Amazingly Informative.....Highly Educational, Deeply insightful and Myth busting Book.., 24 July 2014

Don't Lose Out, Work Out! - Rujuta Diwekar

Amazingly Informative.....Highly Educational, Deeply Insightful Book..

I Was blown away , i must admit...all the way..
The way Rujuta has peeled away the layers and layers of prevailing nutritional & exercise myths/fads in our society that are very far from the truth, revealing the beautiful science behind is really worth a standing ovation,in my opinion.
With a deep understanding of the human physiology and kinesiology , the holistic approach suggested by the author , offering insightful,sound scientific backup every step of the way.... is what captivated me through the entire book..

The Fatloss myths of our society ,The Aerobic & Anaerobic metabolism,Training in the Lactate Threshold,FITT Principle, etc with their specific advantages and how the Elite,smart fitness pros exploit them.. was explained in a way that even a layman...(of course an english speaking one)
can easily understand..is Brilliant.
The book is loaded with myth busting principles..
for eg..
How Cardio in the morning does not help fatloss..,
How Aerobics might work against the very attempt of fatloss if not combined with anaerobic exercises,

All in all...this book is a MUST-if you are a fitness enthusiast...coz you will know the science behind the principles
(FITT, EPOC, VO2 Max,4R , Metabolic pathways, Type 1-2 fibres, Isotonic vs Eccentric contraction,Insulin sensitivity,Resting Metabolism, RPE, Glycogenolysis, etc...etc..),

and is an ABSOLUTE..MUST -If you are NOT a fitness enthusiast,
coz you will Then have the exhilarating joy of seeing all your myth bubbles getting busted..

Thank you Rujuta , for such a wonderful book...

Misleading Title..

Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting - Wayne W. Dyer

The book is a misnomer.
The title -" Wishes fulfilled through Jesus & Christianity.. " is more apt and would have done more justice to represent the book's content.
Not getting me ?? yeah...i thought so..let me introduce to you,some excerpts from the book :

"..........perhaps it is a radical idea for you to declare," i am god & god is love" or believe that " He who abides in love abides in god, and god in him " (1 john 4:16) is who you are. when you are this god, this essence o pure love, it is all you have to give away, and when you realign yourselves in this vein (once again quoting Juesus the Christ,)" With men this is impossible,but with God all things
are possible " Now, all things are possible leaves out nothing including your ability fulfil any and all wishes that are aligned with God.
".......Every time you think of the expression I AM, you initiate God in action.why not continually remind yourself that I LIVE , MOVE,AND HAVE MY BEING AS GOD, THE I AM THAT I AM?If you are a christian or Jewish, you will see that these tidings of spiritual truth i am delivering here are dramatically harmonised with your core teachings....."

Seriously ....i summoned my iron will (lost in the battle of understanding the book's content) and Tried so hard to actually go through the immense Pain of reading this book.. which was but futile, and proved to be too much an effort..

Once ...
lost somewhere in the middle of the ocean of quotations from The Bible,
Suddenly did the insight struck up on me like a thunderbolt and my the then emaciated cerebral hemispheres realised that i am NOT reading The Bible..., but a book concerned with the process of fulfilling my wishes.believe me ...it was the happiest moment all through the journey of reading this book and i said goodbye to the book.....
with tears of joy in my eyes..

Seriously guys....if you belong to any other religion, then this book will bore you to death...Period.
And if you are a regular in church activities, you will love the book ,
But sure will FORGET THE ACTUAL REASON...you picked up the book.

For me, its a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.

"" Anyone can "Give Up",
It's "The Easiest" thing in the world to do.
But to hold it together when Everyone else in the world would Understand even If you fell apart, That's ......TRUE STRENGTH. ""

Unleash the Warrior Within

Unleash the Warrior Within - Richard Machowicz Excellent material...
A must read for everybody and anybody with passion towards self development and a life with high standards...
i loved the material and thoroughly enjoyed reading the book..
some really good ideas and principles discussed in the book.
One of the best books i have read lately..

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness - Dave Ramsey Wonderful book..
Book filled with Principles of good old methods and a very very Strong Commonsense
Absolutely loved and enjoyed thoroughly reading the book..

Have to apply ..

After reading the book ....and a little bit of just analyzing what i had learnt ....did come one of my Eureka Moments...
I think the personal finance system can be classified as follows

Step - 1: Dave Ramsey's Principles --- SAVE
Step - 2: Ramit Sethi --- AUTOMATE / ACCUMULATE
Step - 3 : Robert Kiyosaki --- INVEST


WOW.....Its Amazing...
Planning for the second read ...

Be Rich and Happy

Be Rich and Happy - Robert T. Kiyosaki, Hal Zina Bennett TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME...

Nothing new.

Total book can be summated in a single sentence.. "The current education system..sucks "
I cant believe he wrote an entire book just elaborating a single sentence.
